My View on Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

This is my article on Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
Who Wants to be a Millionaire first aired from 1998 until 2014 and was hosted by Chris Tarrant.
At the start of the show Chris would introduce the fifteen players and they would play fastest finger first where the players had to be the answers in a specific order. The fastest player would get the chance to play for a million pounds where they’d have to answer fifteen questions. The first group of five questions would have the following money sequence.
£100, £200, £300, £500, and £1,000
The second group of five questions would have the following money sequence.
 £2,000, £5,000, £10,000, £20,000, and £50,000
The final group of five questions would have the following money sequence.  
£64,000, £125,000, £250,000, £500,000, and £1,000,000
The player would have four life lines to help them if they got stuck on a specific question. The lifelines included ask the audience, fifty fifty, phone a friend, and switch /flip the question.
After four years of being off screen. In 2018 Who Wants to be a Millionaire Who Wants to be a Millionaire made a comeback as ex Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson as it’s new host who took over from Chris Tarrant.
The beginning of the show remained the same. But the first group of two questions would have the following money sequence.
£500 and £1,000
The second group of five questions would have the following money sequence.
£2,000, £5,000, £10,000, £20,000, and £50,000
The final group of five questions would have the following money sequence.
£75,000, £150,000, £250,000, and £1000, 000
The play would still have four life lines. However, there was a new one called ask the host apart from that the lifelines remained same.
In my opinion I preferred Chris Tarrant because at each milestone he would give them a cheque for the amount of money that they’d won. Then quickly takes it back and says:
“We don’t wanna give you that!”
This shows Chris wants them to win more money.
Whereas Jeremy Clarkson to me after watching the previews is a moody, grumpy sod as there’s no joy in his face.
On the Indian Version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan shows this qualities that Chris Tarrant has.
I would have preferred Bradley Walsh as Chris Tarrant’s replacement than Jeremy Clarkson. As his humour and personality on the Chase and Cash Trapped he would be perfect for this show.
